ESCHATOLOGY Study of End Times

End times for the gentiles
End times for Israel

Tit 2:11-14 KJV 11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us
that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present
world; 13 Looking for (eagerly awaiting and expecting) that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all
iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Tit 2:11-14 ESV 11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training
(disciplining) us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and
godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, (even) the appearing (manifestation) of the
glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all
lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

KJV Act 7:2-4 The God of glory appeared unto our father Abraham, when he was in Mesopotamia, before
he dwelt in Charran, 3 And said unto him, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into
the land which I shall shew thee. 4 Then came he out of the land of the Chaldaeans, and dwelt in Charran:

ESV Eph 1:22-23 gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of
him who fills all in all.

Third entity which did not have existence in any of the history until Christ is raised from the dead. When
